Lavender - Lemon Hot Toddy

April 20, 2018



Hot toddies are traditionally made with whiskey, rum or brandy. This nonalcoholic recipe combines calming lavender with soothing honey and lemon. For extra health protection, add a crushed raw garlic clove.


• 2 cup water

• Fresh juice of 1 lemon

• 2 tablespoons lavender buds (i.e. Lavender in Lavender Hill Cooking Herb)

• 1 teaspoon ginger

• 1 to 2 tablespoons honey or agave nectar, to taste

• 2 tea green bags (decaf or regular) OR 2 tablespoons loose green tea

• 1 to 2 crushed raw garlic cloves, optional


1. Combine water, lemon juice, lavender, ginger, sweetener and tea bags in a saucepan. Bring to boil. Remove from heat and steep for at least 5 minutes.


2. Place optional crushed raw garlic clove at the bottom of each teacup or mug.


3. Strain warm lavender-lemon brew and pour into teacup or mug.


Fresh tips: Crush or mince garlic cloves to release the healing properties of garlic, including the disease-fighting compound allicin. Rub lemon juice on hands and utensils to remove garlic odor.

"I've bought my 3rd box of lavender tea in 30 days. I absolutely love it! I ad it to my Five Roses in my tea pot in the morning. I struggle to enjoy any cup of tea without it since I started drinking it.” - Katrien Grobler - CEO Faithful to Nature
